Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

This is a fine line that I will attempt to explain. Abortion is NOT EVER necessary to save the life of a mother. There are maternal health risks that require a treatment that can cause the indirect, and unintentional death of an unborn child. Example: Life-threatening ectopic pregnancies that require removal of a Fallopian tube, the pregnancy (including the unborn child) will be removed along with the Fallopian tube. The intention of this procedure is to save the life of the mother, and in order to do so, a physician must perform a procedure that indirectly causes the death of her unborn child. Explanation: This is not an abortion. A true abortion is the direct intention to end the life of a human being. It is not a treatment for any type of maternal health risk. The death of a baby never saves his or her mother; procedures that may lead to a child’s death save the life of the mother. https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/is-abortion-ever-necessary-to-save-the-life-of-

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

" If men were angels we would have no need of government." We are most certainly not angels so we need a system of checks and balances to prevent one branch of government from becoming more powerful than the other two. The constitution was intended to limit the power of the federal government. The 10th amendment was added to make this perfectly clear. Ultimately the goal of our founding fathers was to insure that the rights of the individual were always protected and guaranteed.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a born again Christian and a follower of the risen Christ. The son of God and member of the holy trinity who came to earth to live as a man, who paid the ultimate sacrifice when he died for the sins of all mankind on the cross. I believe that I will always fall short of the glory of God, but knowing this truth does not exempt me from trying. I believe the Bible is the inspired work of God and is to be used as a written guide for us to use to live our lives as God intended. I believe as a follower of Christ I am to go and make disciples by sharing the good news with non-believers.

Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?

Very Conservative

Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.

This is the first political office I have ran for so I currently have no track record to reference. Please feel free to contact me by phone or in person and judge for yourself my sincerity on all of the above issues.
